Default Wanted: simple fence with dust collector plan

I need to add a fence and dust collection to my routing setup.

Being that I am new at this, and a simple person who wants to save money, I intend to make it using pine or an inexpensive hardwood like poplar that I can get at Home Depot.

Any ideas where I can find a plan that fits this request?

I realize that I am actually much more interested in seeing what other people have built than actual plans.

HMMMM, might a sticky of people showing off their fences be useful?

Hi Chris

You want a fence that will let you use any of the router bits on the market today not just the small ones, the insert type is the best ,you can make your own out of MDF to keep the cost down but if you can swing it just buy one that's all setup ..
